Well Mumsy,
Sounds like quite a week. This one was much better for us. We had a wonderful activity with the ward on thursday. I think the leadership here wasn’t too confident in us but we threw down an awesome activity and everyone liked it. We have another marked for this week and the next so we had won some confidence of these people. We had also found a family of less actives and started teaching their kids that are like 24 years old and everything was just going perfectly this week. It was so good, I was so excited to get my suit but I got a call yesterday and me and three other people from our zone were emergency transferred. And I discovered today that president swapped around tons of missionaries in the entire mission. I was pretty upset at first when I found out because we had just barely gotten the area going well and we had a perfect week planned this week. But after my angry hour I recognized how much of a blessing it was to be able to meet some people here and to be able to see the gospel change their lives. It was really great here, I will probably be going into my last area of the mission now so it is also another thing to think about. 

So yeah the suit will have to wait. we will see what happens. I will just have to buy one in my next area I guess. But I don’t wanna send you pictures you will have to wait for when I get out of the plane. And yeah that is great to put that in my savings. Thanks a ton mom. The package is perfect everything is great. Well we had a fun time staying inside too during the world cup and we got our party in so I will send you some pictures. We had a great time with everything this week. Everything was going perfect so thats why I got transferred. Thats how it is right?!!
I love you so much mom! I am so excited to see little Alaynna and I hope you all have the most wonderful fourth of July! I love you so much!

Hey Dad,
Thanks a lot for hearing me out. It means a lot. It feels so good to be able to tell you everything Dad. I value your advice so much. Well world cup is nuts here, and Brasil will play on the fourth of July so that means we will be stuck at home to party. I will have to see what we can do here! I am really quite excited and I really love July back at home. It’s colder here so it’s not too awesome but it will still be fun. 
We'll get a show too if Brasil wins or scores any goals. Ha ha well you will have to tell Sam that I didn’t grow any taller, my biceps are bigger and my waist is smaller so thats about it. Ha ha but I was transferred Dad, president threw down a big transfer and nobody was expecting it. It was pretty annoying because we had gotten everything going perfectly here. But that’s what happens on the mish right?
Sounds like you guys are having a pretty good time back at home. I sure love Taylorsville days and man do I miss July summers. Be sure to take lots of photos of Alaynna. I cant wait to see her again. She must be so darling. 
You know dad, I sure love being a missionary. I am so grateful for the opportunity that I had to meet such incredible people here and to make some life long friendships. I don’t know if I got all my work here done but I was bettered by the experiences I had here and its all good memories. I am a little nervous for what is to come but I am excited also. This will probably be my last area so we will see how it goes. I am quite excited. I was really hoping the jazz would pick up Parker, but what can you do. I hope they start doing better. And my Rockies too. 
I am happy for ya and I hope the knee is ready to go for October because its gonna get crazy. Haha well Dad, I love you tons.
